"yeah i think it's going to take a continuous amount of wins, we're having a good year and we need to finish this off strong and keep getting wins." johnson believes this will be a long term project for the spartans because in previous seasons they have shown a lack of consistency. "if we can on the up, other teams and people are going to start noticing it. we'll start getting ranked more and things like that. so it's not going to be a one year thing it's got to be a two, three years in a row like the other teams have done." but with eight major professional sports teams in the bay area san jose mercury news sports writer mark purdy says....they get all the attention. "in the bay area the real problem for san jose state or really stanford or cal, is cutting through clutter of all the professional teams we have. we have more professional teams than any market in the united states except for new york city." purdy explains that even with a national ranking it would be hard to get any recognition at all."
